I watched the Las vegas Democratic debate tonight. Okay, so I was multi-tasking during most of it, but what a snooze-fest! I realize the 3 contenders were making a concerted effort to be civil to each other, ( a clever political ploy) but I found it a major bore. Not because of the civility itself, which is refreshing in politics, but because it was so dang fake. I often judge debate "performances" from an acting perspective, and I'd give them all a D for disingenuous. I found them forced and insincere. Barack is brash, there's something sleazy about Edwards, and Hillary- well, there are no words that can aptly describe how I feel about her, at least in public. Her momentary melt-down that showed a hint of humanity was just that, momentary.
The debate just confirmed why I would never vote for any of them, even if Huckabee or Paul were to win the Republican nomination. Not that I'd vote for them, either.
Hillary led the pack in criticizing Bush, even though he's not running. And once again, the Dems were adamant about pulling out the troops from Iraq immediately, which just demonstrates how lacking in foresight they are. Not a great attribute for a President. It also shows what a liar and a waffler Hillary is. Hasn't Madame Clinton, in the past, promised to bring home the troops, then stated it would be imprudent to do that? But tonight, she claimed she would bring 'em all home. How many times has she waffled on that issue? Actually, one of the highlights of tonight's debate was when one of the moderators questioned them about this flip-flopping on the issue. At least I had a good laugh.
